Should probably have the pump pressure tested to see if the pump pressure is acceptable

It's probally low on power steering fluid. If you open the hood, look on the left side right over the passenger tire. Theres a resivore there for power steering fluid. Unscrew the cap and wipe the dip stick clean. Then put it back in and pull it back out and see how far up the stick the fluid reaches. Make sure you put it in all the way so you get an accurate reading. If its low, add some until it says full on the dip stick. then put the cover back on, start the van and turn the steering all the way left and then all the way right a few times. The noise should stop as long as that was the problem. Windstars and known for having power steering leaks so I am going to bet that is the noise your hearing. It's a low toned, whining noise if it is low on power steering fluid. Hope that works for you. Good Luck.

check you o-rings on the pressure line going into the pump . put a new one on it also check the pressure regulator nut that screws into the back of the pump see if it's tight! then check for a crack around the return hose nipple on the resevour

Both my power steering and brakes stopped working at the same time. I can still brake my truck, but only if I press har5d with both feet. There is no fluid leeking, and both the power steering and brake...

It would sound like you have lost a serpentine belt. Do you have a braking system that is boosted by the power steering pump? While it is possible for a pump to fail it is rather unusual to do so suddenly. Unless the systems have something in common (like the power steering fluid) it is highly unlikely both systems would fail for no reason simultaneously. Did any other warning lights or an alternator gauge or temperature gauge give you any indications of a problem?

That happens alot on rhose may have air in the system..while someone is turning the wheel, check to see if you have alot of bubbles in the resivor...if so, you have alot of air in there, and that will cause it to whin..Now to fix the problem you may can take it to a local shop, and they may have a power st. flushing machine..and thats the best way to get the air out...And if that dont work, your power st. pump, maybe going bad....Goodluck..

How to identify the power steering motor in the

Look where your power steering resivor is located...trace the hoses coming out the side or bottom to the pump on the engine. Sometimes the resivor for the pump is drectly above the pump itself but unlikely with your vehicle. Replacing it will be a joy for you (not really) as you will have to release tension from the main motor belt, remove that from the power steering pump and then manage to have enough room to get to it to replace it.

How or where is power stering resivor

From the front of the car, walk around the passenger side and shine a light down the fire wall. If you lean in you will see the cap. I used a tranny funnel to add fluid to mine.

i would try flushing it out, but if it still doesnt work look and see if hose is kinked , if not it is most likely the pump. i would get the pump checked out before paying for another one.

Power steering whine

I don't know if this will work, but if it is the same whinning sound that I have heard, all it takes is to buy some belt dressing and spray on the belts and pullys.
